Idan officially ended today (Monday) at Maccabi Haifa. The champion has officially announced the departure of Nikita Rokavica, Who did become a free agent a few weeks ago, but recently rumors have been circulating that it is possible that the king of Premier League goals in the last two seasons will eventually sign a new contract. The Greens wanted to put an end to the speculation so we issued an official farewell announcement.
It was reported yesterday that the striker sent a message through a third party about his desire to return to the negotiating table and a wave of rumors ignited. After ten years, the Australian striker enters the club’s history books and is in seventh place in his all-time conquerors table, ahead of only Zahi Armeli, Yaniv Katan, Danny Rom, Reuven Atar, Johnny Hardy and Yossi Benayoun.
After the official farewell announcement of Maccabi Haifa, Rokavica also said goodbye in an exciting post he posted on his Instagram account. The 34-year-old striker wrote: “It’s time to say a few words. 5 years .. Where to start? I came to Maccabi Haifa when no one wanted to come here and everyone just wanted to leave. But I still came with one goal – to bring this huge club to where it is. Belong to him, be in the top. “
“For me it was a special moment to come to Haifa, because my wife is from here. When I visited Israel at the age of 11 I remembered the sympathy around the team. In my five years here many things happened. In my first two years at the club I went through difficult times, but eventually things started to change. It became my home In Israel, my two daughters were born here. “
“I want to say a huge thank you to everyone involved with this club, from my first day there until now. To all the team, to all my teammates who have long since become my brothers. We achieved great things together. The most important thing of course is to thank the fans. From the first moment you showed me how much you love. You’re just amazing and you’ll stay in my heart forever. I keep hearing the song you made for me play in my head. I always gave my all when I stepped on the grass and I hope I brought you many beautiful moments. I love you all a lot. Yours, Number 13, Nicky. “
